‘A despicable being has left this world,’ Carlotto
The head of the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo human rights association, Estela de Carlotto, came on stage today after the death of dictator Jorge Rafael Videla was revealed.
“A despicable being has left this world,” she stressed, adding “history will assess the genocide and the disgrace of the civic and military dictatorship he commanded and which he never regretted.”
“He was already judged and condemned here,” De Carlotto told a radio show, but although he was a Catholic, “he will not go to heaven” because “no matter what the man says on Earth, God will speak differently.” “There are good men and bad men. He was a bad man,” she concluded.
